Dear friends,

Thank you so much for your enthusiasm, generosity, and active participation for the upcoming section of our festival which is dedicated to the three young musicians from Russia - Aiman Baymuldina (Moscow), Peter Lundstrem (Moscow), and Alexey Stadler (St. Petersburg).

We are lucky to have them here, and have to thank Elizabeth Bukhanova from the Chaliapin Center, for making this happen.

Attached please find detailed schedule for nine days, from today, November 2nd to November 11th, for these three amazing individuals. As you will see, some of the events on the schedule still need to be confirmed, some might be added, and some might be eliminated. I will keep you posted.

Please look at the attached schedules and feel free to ask me any question. At this point I don't know the answers to your questions, such as their knowledge of English, allergies to the dogs, dietary preferences, etc. I do know, however, that it will be a wonderful experience for all of us. We have to be well coordinated, punctual, and flexible. Elizabeth tells me that these are all wonderful kids from great Russian families.

Please don't hesitate to contact me by e-mail or telephone ANY TIME of day or night concerning these kids.

Tonight they will arrive; Elizabeth meets each of them at the airport and the rest is on the schedule.

Good luck to all of us and THANK YOU
